Go Hard or Go Home

Today I'm sharing a card I recently made with Stamping Bella's Football Squidgy.  If you are a football fan you are sure to love this cute little fellow.  

I actually made this card after receiving a high school graduation invitation from a family member and instead of having the usual cap and gown photo, he proudly sent his photo decked out in his football uniform.  It was easy to see that this young man was extremely proud of his sports and wanted to pursue his talents further along those lines. 

With that in mind, I decided this stamp would be the perfect image to use for the congratulations card we returned to him.

The image is stamped on Neenah 110# cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I used the Memory Box Matinee Rectangle for the edge.

The sentiment is from the same package and I used the Sizzix Dotted Square die for it and the green matting.  

The A2 Standard card base is ivory, covered with the football paper from my stash.  The layers were secured as shown in the photo.  Lastly I added the brown jute and a star charm to complete the card design.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
